The Underground Storage Tank (UST) Program is a major component of the Massachusetts groundwater resource protection effort. MassDEP implements federal requirements addressing registration and inspection of UST systems used to store petroleum fuels or hazardous substances. UST systems found to be leaking or not working properly must be repaired or replaced, and any resulting environmental damage assessed and cleaned up.
Note: The forms below currently remain in use. Replacement forms will be introduced in summer 2015
- Delay of New UST Forms Rollout - April 2015
Until the new MassDEP online underground storage tank (UST) data management system is available, UST owner/operators and third-party inspectors should continue using the existing FP-290, FP-290R and FP-289 forms to meet their registration, status change and inspection submittal requirements.
